From Greenbelt Access Television, “Let’s eat Cicadas Tonight” is a fun and informative video by Claude Aubert, Secretary of Greenbelt Access Television. He makes a cameo appearance as a taster. Video features Betty Balaba (chef), and Bob and Marie-Cécile Groelsema.

Also from Greenbelt Access Television, this informative video is described thusly: “If you want to know more about these fascinating creatures, listen as two entomologists explain the periodical cicadas in hopes that people can appreciate these magical bugs while they’re among us. Many thanks to USDA research scientists Dr. Jay Evans and Dr. Samuel Ramsey aka “Dr. Buggs” for giving us a glimpse into what makes cicadas so special.

Above, a video by Claude Aubert posted to the Greenbelt Biota Facebook Group and copied to the Greenbelt Maryland YouTube Channel.
